Thuja on Metal Slab


I’ve written about this thuja a couple of times.  I’ve originally envisioned this tree going on a standard bonsai pot but it will have to be a very large pot. This  tree is between 4 to 5 ft tall.  I got inspired by Michael Hagedorn’s  Mt Hemlock forest on slab.  Michael used a Teflon slab but I used 1/2 inch thick steel slab with torched edges.  I had a welder make the slab for me using my design.

Although this tree  could use more carving and more ramification, I’ve decided to incorporate this tree on a small display garden at the 2017 NW Flower and Garden Show.
